Kodi Whitfield has spent most of his life trying to live up to the standard his father, Bob Whitfield, set on the field as an All-American at Stanford and a Pro Bowl offensive lineman in the NFL.
Not this week.
The sophomore wide receiver is getting more attention than he ever has entering eighth-ranked Stanford's game at Oregon State on Saturday night. He started making a name for himself with a remarkable one-handed touchdown catch in the Cardinal's 24-10 victory over UCLA last weekend that has been all the talk on campus.
It was the No. 1 college football play of the week on ESPN and the No. 2 play overall behind Shane Victorino's grand slam that sent the Boston Red Sox to the World Series.
